My earlier post was so depressing that I needed to follow it up with another. I love teaching. I just finished with a class of writing 1 students. We studied English grammar. Which is terrible. Almost as bad as spelling.
(One student: Teacher, my brain is done. Can I go home?)
At one point one of my students said that English was too hard.
I agreed wholeheartedly. Verb tenses are much easier in Japanese, I said. And I told them we would just stop learning English and switch to Japanese for the night.
I taught them numbers 1-10, good morning, and how are you.
I like making my students laugh. I like laughing. I did both tonight. And now I feel some neurons zizzing about. Worth remembering when I am in the slough of despond.
So see, today was not a bad day. It just had some good moments and some bad ones.
Told you: no worries.
